The deceased was a brother to former Governor James Ibori.

 “What made his passage so difficult to understand is that we were together last Saturday, but, I do know that for those of us who reads the Holy Bible that no one questions God, He gives and He takes,” Governor Okowa said.

He continued, “I will urge you to realise that God who took him at this time has a reason for taking him,” adding, “We thank God for the life he lived, he was a great bridge, whatever vacuum he left behind, God will feel it and may He see the family through this trying moment.”
